Development Program



Initiated and led by choreographer Martin del Amo, Talking Dance: Dance Ecologies centres around a series of conversations, designed to explore more deeply the way independent choreographers work within the Australian arts sector, and how Critical Path relates to that inter-relationship.

Martin will interview three groups of artists made up of three dance makers each, whose professional trajectories frequently intersect and who have all engaged in different ways with Critical Path, forming three ‘mini ecologies’. They are Angela Goh, Rhiannon Newton, Ivey Wawn, Jade Dewi Tyas Tunggal, Victoria Hunt, Kirk Page, Thomas E.S. Kelly, Katina Olsen and Taree Sansbury.

Martin’s interviews with the artists will be distilled into three texts published on the Critical Path website throughout the year. The project will culminate in a live public conversation between Martin and one artist from each ‘ecology’ in October.
